Paul D. Kissinger, FASLA, PLA, Principal

Creating environments that exude energy, offer economic viability and enhance overall aesthetics are essential components in Paul’s overall approach. His main focus is to positively impact the environment by influencing the process and in doing so produce outdoor spaces that are artistic in nature with an intrinsic value of bringing people together. Paul has been involved in a variety of assignments ranging from the revitalization of communities, restoration of urban waterfronts and resort development, to the implementation of multi-modal transportation corridors and large scale recreational planning related to the conservation of wetland environments.  He derives great satisfaction in knowing that, that which he advocates for, supports and produces will ultimately change lives for the better.
